Guerlain – KissKiss Lipstick, Stick Gloss, Extreme Lipstick – Swatches

Guerlain’s KissKiss Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is an extremely creamy, opaque formula that goes on like a dream and lasts for hours. The lipsticks are never drying and make lips feel hydrated and soft. KissKiss Extreme Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is similar, but touted to be able to prevent your lipstick from smudging or bleeding. Personally, I find the original lipstick formula to be better than the Extreme one; I don’t find the Extreme is really that bleed-free. However, Extreme has a less glossy finish and more of a semi-matte look to it.

KissKiss Stick Gloss ($30.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a sheer, gloss-in-solid-form lipstick. I’m not in love with these, as I find them fairly sheer and feel like I need to use more product for each application (therefore, I imagine I’d go through a tube much faster). These reminded me a bit of MAC’s Slimshines – fun and nice to use, but you just use them up way too fast. Stick Gloss is extremely moisturizing and has a very nice, ultra glossy look when applied to lips.
